Four rescued from sinking yacht in Poole

Four people had to be rescued off the Dorset coast after the yacht they were in began to sink.
The crew in Poole Harbour sent a Mayday to coastguards just after 19:00 BST after the 38ft Ketch rapidly started to take on water.
Poole's inshore lifeboat crew were able to stem the intake caused by a broken pipe and towed the vessel to Holes Bay.
Helmsman Glen Mallen said: "When there is any sign of water ingress it is best to raise the alarm and ask for help."
